Citizens Bank sponsors free MMF tickets for SCC Spring 2024 graduates

Published on Jun 5, 2024

The Master Musician Festival’s (MMF) Next Generation Initiative is offering free weekend passes to Somerset Community College (SCC) Spring 2024 graduates. MMF will be July 19-20 on the Festival Field at SCC Somerset Campus.

This free experience for SCC graduates was made possible due to the $2,500 sponsorship from Citizens Bank.

The MMF Next Generation Initiative enables businesses to sponsor graduating classes at local and regional institutions. Tiffany Finley, the Executive Director of MMF, mentioned that the program not only inspires the next generation of festival-goers and leaders, but also celebrates the significant accomplishments of graduating seniors at both secondary and postsecondary levels.

MMF, like SCC, maintains its focus on the community. Tiffany Finley, Executive Director of MMF, emphasized the significance of fostering a strong relationship with the community for the local festival.

“The best way for us to continue fostering relationships with the next generation, who will lead this festival when we are all gone, is to welcome them and show them what a magical experience MMF is and what an incredible benefit it brings to the community,” Finley said. “This initiative also reinforces our mission to bring music to people of all walks of life and support music education, which is extremely important.”

Those who qualify will need to check in at the front gate with their ID on SCC's Festival Field on July 19-20 to claim their MMF weekend pass! Passes will only be released to the recent Spring 2024 graduate with an ID. Passes are non-transferrable.
